Indie Fashion Week DC Cycle 3 | Oct. 3-9, 2016
“Dearly Beloved, we are gathered here today for this thing called FASHION!” From October 3rd-9th, Indie Fashion Week will be hosting several events throughout Washington, DC. For Cycle 3, the fashion series will be paying homage “in style” to the Iconic Independent artist Prince Rogers Nelson, whose untimely passing rocked the world this year. In addition, Indie Fashion Week will be highlighting Domestic Violence as the month of October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Throughout the week, the color PURPLE will be represented throughout all of the events and several songs by Prince will the theme of each individual event.
Indie Fashion Week was created by Harley Morgan and Terrance Payton (ROE the Agency, LLC) to create a fresh look at independent fashions who may not be able to gain big recognition when they first launch on the scene. Buyers, the media, influencers, style connoisseurs and the general public will get an ample opportunity to interact, connect with, and support Fashion, Beauty, and Lifestyle brands over a seven day span. Indie Fashion Week aims to bridge the gap between consumers and independent brands by building a platform to facilitate sustainability, brand expansion, and retail opportunities. Indie Fashion Week is building a new and vibrant fashion community by creating a space where tools can be provided to help fashion entrepreneurs to learn about the business of fashion, to hone their craft, to network with their peers, and to build long lasting business relationships.
When asked about the vision behind the creation of Indie Fashion Week, Co-Creator Harley states “Indie Fashion Week is shifting the style culture in a multitude of ways. From highlighting the fashion brands from our area down to the EXPERIENCE that you receive with such a wide range of fashion-fused events, you have no choice but to be excited! The mood Is changing; the time has come for us to get excited about fashion here in our city!”
